RECREATION [Lines with live links begin with ***]
Recreation means so many different things to each one of us...

Depending on your age, your abilities, your interests; if you’re looking for something to do by yourself or with your family of if you want to meet other people; if your idea of recreation is just a night out for dinner, or fishing, swimming, relaxing or maybe heavy exercise on a steep trail---Oh, my goodness, I think you get the idea!, you may find that Wells or nearby Wells probably has it...
For now, perhaps these links and contact information will give you some ideas about what our area offers, especially if you begin calling and talking, talking, talking with our local people...
